while he didn't have an attack that night, president obama talked about it the next day. >> he will do away with regulations on wall street, but he will crack down on sesame street. thank goodness, somebody is finally cracking down on big bird. pbs has been a favorite target of mostly conservative politicians for years. when he was house speaker, gingrich called it a little sand box for the rich, prompting us to ask some parents what they thought about it. >> i think he chose the wrong target. >> the network of sesame street and the civil war and masters, pbs has 179 stations across the country, including some smaller rural stations that couldn't make it without the subsidies. the federal share of the corporation for public broadcasting is about $450 million this year, that is 15% of their overall operating budget for a perspective, that is about 1-100th of a percent of our federal budget. and that 450 million is about what the pentagon spends every six hours. the operator of pbs almost fell off her couch when he said that. >> to suggest that defunding the public broadcasting as part o

between now and that next date on the 16th? >> well, i think obama needs to become a little bit more assertive, a little bit more aggressive. as the front runner, i believe he felt like he could just sort of coast a little bit and as the front runner not make any mistakes and perhaps maybe romney would make some mistakes. i think romney needs to be more specific about his plan if he wants to move forward. he needs to give those details that obama was hammering him on. >> it will be interesting to see how that next one pans on. the next one is a town hall with a list of people versus a single moderator asking the questions. we want to know right now with a set-up like that, who do you think will come out on top? >> i think obama will be much better prepared an his general demeanor typically plays well for a town hall meeting. if he can eliminate the pauses and come out with a little more energy, i think he'll probably do pretty well at a town hall format. >> so specifically what does each candidate need to do to sway voters in that next debate? >> i think both of them really need to s

obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise, a study by mckinsey and company of american businesses said 30% of them are anticipating dropping people from coverage. so for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board, and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want medicare -- don't want obama care. it's why republicans said do not do this. and the republicans had a plan. they put a plan out. they put a plan, a bipartisan plan. it was swept aside. i think something this big, this important has to be done on a bipartisan basis and we have to have a president who can reach across the aisle and fashion important legislation with the input from both parties. >> governor romney said this has to be done on a bipartisan baasis. this was a bipartisan idea. in fact it was a republican idea. governor romney at the beginning of his debate said what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. and i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might have given some advice to republicans in congress about how to coope

the president will do over the course of the next four years. and how exactly we'll get there. >> reporter: with polls showing mr. obama leading in the crucial swing states, top aides have encouraged the president to be himself, don't change what's working, one senior adviser said. for his part romney's advisers say he's prepared, that he just needs to convey his message clearly on the biggest stage of his political career. and throughout the primary debates, brian, mitt romney would write his father's name, george romney, on the top of his notepad. his father, of course, being his inspiration. he would also write one other letter, "o" to remind him to focus on president obama. but tonight when they are finally side by side, he probably won't need any reminders. >> peter alexander in the hall, thanks for starting us off tonight. >>> now over to our political director and chief white house correspondent chuck todd also at the venue tonight. chuck, what's the task for both sides, for both men? >> reporter: well, i can tell you that both campaigns view it this way. the candidate

worried that obama might lose now? >> no, not really. >> obama strategists hint the boss learned a lesson. >> he'll review it, if he wants to make some changes in the next debate, he'll do so. >> romney strategists claim all the change about their guy was his audience. >> people, i think saw for the first time, a lot of people, not in a 30 second attack ad or in a 12 second snip et on the news, but got to hear him indirectly. >> romney's hoping the debate strengthens his poll numbers in battleground states. tomorrow there's a new factor, a jobs report expected to help president obama by showing fewer layoffs. in denver, colorado, i'm steve handlesman, nbc bay area news. now for a look at how social media reacted to last night's debate. let's go to business and tech editor scott budman. >> thank you very much. last night wasn't just about which candidate won, it was also about the dominance of what we often call the second screen. social networking pulled in a huge number of debate watchers, nearly 11 million tweets sent out during the 90 minute debate. and a huge response on facebo

unemployed, and those jobs that were lost under the bush administration that president obama has restored in manufacturing and the like, the key number for them is, who do i trust to take my long-term unemployment needs, my middle class family's needs, to the next level? so i think that the combination of people just trusting president obama more, if you're middle class, and that he has delivered on what he said he would in terms of getting us out of this hole is a powerful -- >> murphy doesn't buy that. >> no, that's their message. but i think we're missing the biggest thing that's happened in the campaign. economic things out of washington is one thing. but 80 million people finally got an unfiltered look at mitt romney, and they liked what they saw. and i think you'll see credible polls this week showing significant movement in the swing states and a much closer race. that's the big factor right now. >> let me put this in a different format, because we all sit in washington and get all these numbers. the average american goes outside and says, ok, 600,000 part-time jobs, 114,000 full-t

obama in the debate camp practice sessions. mitt romney is getting ready for the next session, next debate, hoping his mum carries over next week. >> john harwood is cnbc's chief washington correspondent. thanks for being here. i don't know if it's possible to strip politics away from these new unemployment numbers, but if you can, explain, does the president get credit for these numbers coming down, and how real are they? >> well, the president gets credit or blame for whatever the economic conditions are on his watch. these are numbers that are better than they've been, but they're still not good numbers. 7.8% is a high unemployment rate. we've got an economy that's not growing very fast. but it's certainly good news for the president to be able to say that 7.8%, the rate when i took office, we're back down there again. but i think people make too much political impact of these jobs numbers, because they don't need a government statistic to tell them how they feel about it. >> but then you have somebody influential like jack welch who tweets something suggesting these numbers are

message. why would the next four years be any different than the current four years? the problem for team obama, the president didn't make that case for himself when he had 70 million people at the debate and now they'll take down mitt romney with fact-checking and challenging what he said in the debate in advertisements and speeches, but they will not have that same, large audience. >> peter noted that later in the week, the vice presidential debate will take place. could that be a potential game changer given the uneven debate we just saw this past week? >> normally the vice presidential debates are not that key, but now all eyes will be on joe biden to show that he can do a better job than his boss, if you will, president obama against paul ryan and this will be a tough debate. i've been told david axelrod had been planning to take charge of the debate camp, and now he is in charge with the vice president's team. >> andrea mitchell, thank you. >> you bet. >>> another story we're following tonight, gas prices. they're dropping across much of the country which make the soaring incre
